Porthmeor Studios

Porthmeor Studios

I was happy to hear that Porthmeor Studios in St Ives has just won £900,000 in government funding for much needed renovation to the crumbling listed buildings on Back Lane West that have been home to internationally-renowned artists and local fishermen for more than a century. The image above shows the view inside Ralph Freeman‘s beautiful studio.

I have been a regular visitor to St Ives since childhood, usually staying in my auntie’s beachfront apartment (next door to the one that potter Bernard Leach used to live in) in the Barnaloft block just a hundred yards or so down the beach from these much-loved buildings that have formed the backdrop to many great days of sun, sea ‘n’ surf on Porthmeor Beach.
